“Nice Garden”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

This is not a huge garden, but it had a good variety of flowers and plants, including ponds with water lilies & large koi. It was nice strolling around the various areas and stopping to sit on the many benches. Parking is in the shade under the trees which we appreciated since we had to leave the dogs in the car. The Hall is now open to the public but was closed when we were there.

“Relaxing oasis close to the city”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We visited the gardens only over the August bank holiday weekend. We took our dog with us and had a great time strolling around the immaculate gardens and spending time down by the ponds in glorious sunshine.

The gardens are a good choice for an afternoon out, a very relaxed place with a convenient coffee shop with tasty well priced food and drink.

Overall, a nice afternoon outing, but quite expensive just for the gardens and crazy that you also have to pay to park the car!!
Plus you can't take a picnic!

“Beautiful gardens but quite pricey”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

We enjoyed our visit to renishaw hall and gardens however it only took us an hour to walk around them at a cost of £6.00 each plus an extra pound to park on he grass! The gardens are beautiful and well worth a look, but my friend and I both agreed to was a little pricey.

“A pleasant afternoon - will come back again”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

We went for a walk around the gardens on a summer's Saturday afternoon. There were very well kept, with a few hidden treasures along optional paths and walkways.

Car parking was conveniently located near to the entrance and in easy access of the main house.

The map of the grounds was fairly accurate, which helped make sure we covered it all and didn't miss anything. Some areas are accessed by steps, but nothing too arduous.

The entrance fee was a little pricey for the size of the gardens, but all in all a very enjoyable afternoon spent out in the sunshine with some very good photo opportunities.

We also stopped off in the café for some refreshment and the drinks and cakes were what you would expect and reasonably priced.

“Update based on tour of house”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

I had previously submitted a review based on the gardens and the cafe etc but have now toured the house. I felt the tour was excellent and was pleased to witness the lengths staff went to in trying to accommodate a wheel chair user into our tour (really positive without drawing unnecessary attention). The groups can be large but I did not have a problem with this as our guide was informative and used to handling groups like this. I would suggest touring the house before the gardens as the guide tells you some informative stuff which is useful as you wander round later
